The employment of writers is expected to grow more slowly than the average for all careers through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Competition for writing jobs has been and will continue to be competitive, but certain fields will offer better opportunities than other areas.┬áThe growth of online publishing on company Web sites and other online services will create a demand for many talented writers. The DOL says that "writers and authors who have adapted to online media and are comfortable writing for and working with a variety of electronic and digital tools should have an advantage in finding work."┬áThe fields of advertising and public relations should also provide job opportunities.
